Synopsis

The life and times of a group of twentysomething black gay men living in West Hollywood. The group is led by Marcus, a successful photographer who doesn't really date -- that is until drop-dead-gorgeous Darby moves in next door. Marcus rushes over to lend a helping hand to his new neighbor and finds, much to his chagrin, that Darby is straight. Marcus heads off to drown his sorrows at Miss Smokies, a favorite bar where he catches up with some friends: Hill, who moves in with Marcus after he catches his boyfriend cheating on him; Dante, a young, hell-bent party guy who leans heavily on drugs and alcohol; and Chris, a fabulous diva drag queen who adds just the right amount of flair into their already dramatic lives.
